The Mistaken Billionaire
Muse #2
By: Lexxie Couper
Releasing June 5th, 2017
Entangled Publishing: Indulgence, Contemporary Romance
In The Mistaken Billionaire (Muse #2) by Lexxie Couper, Mila Elderkin had her heart set on becoming the best journalist ever, but circumstances robbed her of that chance when she penned a piece that upset the person she wrote about. However, years later, she finds herself enjoying the company of the literary star whose harrowing past she dissected, then penned an article on and had published. Worried about explaining who she really is, Mila does her best to keep her identity a secret. But when Thomas learns the truth, will he be able to forgive her or will their chance at happy ever after be lost? 

Ms. Couper has an extraordinary ability to write any trope and master it with flying colors, and this story encompassing the mistaken identity and enemy to lovers tropes was one of Ms. Couper's best books in my opinion. Seriously, this book had everything I enjoy about romance novels -- sizzling chemistry between the main characters; plenty of exquisite heat and passion when the couple's chemistry spills over onto the pages in sex scenes; dialogue that made me laugh at times and want to cry at others; and an ending that left me satisfied and looking forward to more of this series because of the secondary characters, especially Sebastian.

The way this story started had me reading quickly, determined to discover whether the heroine would get to her destination all right or whether she'd end up enjoying herself in a different way than what she'd planned. Because it was palpable that the way her night was going things were going to get very interesting for her. Not only due to the outfit she was wearing and the way Ms. Couper depicts it through the dialogue, but because of the situation Mila finds herself in to bring her into contact with Thomas for the first time. 

As for the dialogue, it was captivating due to the history between these two and their growing relationship. Mila's journalism career may have been ruined, but it hasn't stopped her from making a success of herself. She's strong and brave the way she's bounced back from her past, and I liked her determination to achieve anything she puts her mind to, especially with what she's doing for the kids she teaches. I also liked the way she motivates Thomas to achieve his goal of finishing his book. Talk about a way to inspire him.

While Thomas, I was absolutely charmed by him. His past wasn't easy with how his parents acted towards each other, but he managed to overcome it and has done really well for himself. I also liked how protective he was of Mila when it came to those that were trying to protect him. No way was he going to allow anyone to breach her privacy. Yet, what I liked most about the hero was his determination to show the heroine fun times and not allow their time together to be all about him finishing his book.

Finally, Ms. Couper really impressed me with this story where the secondary characters entertained me just as much as the main ones and I loved the friendship Thomas and Sebastian shared as well as the tight bond between Mila and her sister, Josie. Moreover, I liked how the secondary characters weren't afraid to offer their opinion, especially if it was Sebastian advising Mila or Josie advising Thomas. The way this story ended had me smiling big time, because this couple are meant to be and I loved the words they say to each other at the end. It definitely illustrates how wonderful their tale of love is for them to be able to overcome all the obstacles they did to achieve their happy ever after. I would recommend The Mistaken Billionaire by Lexxie Couper, if you enjoy the mistaken identity trope, the enemy to lovers trope, or books by authors Jess Dee, Vivian Arend, Erin Nicholas or Lorelei James.

Thomas St Clair is used to getting exactly what he wants, when he wants it. So when a mysterious woman shows up at his door with his runaway dog and her presence drives away his writer’s block, he’s willing to put up with her secrets if it means she’ll stay around.
Mila Elderkin once had a promising career in journalism, until her dreams were shattered by a rising star in the literary world. When fate lands her at that same man’s door years later, and he doesn’t recognize her, it seems she’s been offered a chance for a little fun. Mila’s not out for revenge, especially not once she starts to see the man beneath the persona. But the past has funny way of creeping into the present, and secrets don’t lie quiet forever.


His shirt muffled his laugh as she pulled it up over his head.
“Oh, wow.” She ran her gaze over what she’d revealed. “Wow.”
He stood motionless, aching for her.
She met his stare for a heartbeat before returning her attention to his torso. “You’re built like some kind of sex god.”
His body thrummed at her breathy exclamation. His cock jerked in his pants. “You haven’t got to the best part yet.”
The ridiculous boast made her laugh. “Your dick is the best part? And here I was impressed by your skill with words.”


Lexxie Couper started writing when she was six and hasn’t stopped since. She’s not a deviant, but she does have a deviant’s imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get erotic romances that can make you laugh, cry, shake with fear or tremble with desire.
Sometimes all at once.
When she’s not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie’s life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she’s insane, a indoor cat who likes to stalk shadows, and her daughters, who both utterly captured her heart and changed her life forever.
